Colour in Your Life
If you love pastels, be sure to watch the latest episode of “Colour in Your Life” featuring Gippsland artist, David Alldridge. The program, hosted by Graeme Stevenson, provides a fascinating insight into David’s creative process and techniques.
If you’re an aspiring pastel artist, you’ll pick up some great pointers including tips on keeping your artwork clean during the process (something many beginners find difficult with pastels). Regardless of your preferred medium or experience, David’s demonstration provides valuable information on all aspects of creating a work of art.
The episode also touches on David’s artistic journey in becoming a successful artist. A key event for David was discovering pastels which transformed his initial interest in photography into a desire to utilise pastels to create realistic artworks of wildlife, people and landscapes.
David has always had a strong passion for wildlife which stemmed from his early childhood love for frogs; a favourite being the Growling Grass Frog. These beautiful creatures feature in much of his work where he accurately and superbly captures their translucent colour and texture.
So, put some Colour in Your Life, and don’t miss viewing the current episode on YouTube
